Microsoft andÂ Space Jam: A New LegacyÂ are coming together for an epic partnership in the leadup to the movie’s release inÂ 2021.
In celebration of the new movie, you can help create an original arcade-style video game inspired by the new movie.
Starting from 14 December through 30 December 2020,Â anyone aged 14 years and above upÂ will be able to submit the game ideas they think will be a slam dunk at the officialÂ contestÂ website.
All you have to do is review theÂ Official Rules, select the gaming genre of your choosing using a key image and describe your game idea in less than 500 words.
Two lucky winners will have their ideas brought to life in the officialÂ Space Jam: A New LegacyÂ arcade-style video game, available as the newest Perk for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in 2021.
Winners will also receive the following prizes:
To help coders of all ages jump-start their creativity, Microsoft Stores are alsoÂ hosting free, one-of-a-kindÂ Space Jam: A New Legacy-themed virtual workshopsÂ on video game creation.Â
Students will build a playable prototype ofÂ a videoÂ game using block-based coding on theâ€¯MakeCodeâ€¯Arcade platform, all while learning about the professional skills and STEAM careers that are involved in game design.
The themed coding workshops are available online here. You can also findâ€¯additionalâ€¯resources and other free workshops that teach new skills and keep kids entertained this holiday season, on theâ€¯microsoft.com virtual student workshop page.â€¯
Additionally, there are twoÂ Microsoft Learnâ€¯lessonsÂ targeting more experienced coders, older teens, high school and college-aged students, and adultsÂ that focusÂ on how to useâ€¯player stats to help a coachâ€¯makeâ€¯real-timeâ€¯decisionsâ€¯in the middle of a game.Â
In the first lesson, you canâ€¯predict efficiency ratings with machine learning andâ€¯Visual Studio Code,â€¯using data fromâ€¯human andÂ Tune Squadâ€¯basketball players.â€¯
The second lessonÂ includesÂ buildingÂ a web app that uses additional machine learning models in real-time to help a coach decide whoâ€¯needsâ€¯aÂ waterÂ breakâ€¯and who should be put in the game to yield the highest likelihood of winning.â€¯
LeBron James and co-stars Don Cheadle andÂ Cedric JoeÂ will help introduce the Microsoft Store and Learn lessons with short videos focusing on the power of computer science and coding.Â In the film, Joe plays Jamesâ€™s son Dom, who dreams of being aÂ videoÂ game developer.
Microsoft and Warner Bros. will have more exciting news to share in the coming months ahead of the official release ofÂ Space Jam: A New LegacyÂ movie and video game sometime in 2021.
